C++14 Is Set In Stone

beernutz Silicone? (193 comments)

I think you mean Sillicon

Any of a class of synthetic materials that are polymers with a chemical structure based on chains of alternate silicon and oxygen atoms, with organic groups attached to the silicon atoms. Such compounds are typically resistant to chemical attack and insensitive to temperature changes and are used to make rubber, plastics, polishes, and lubricants.

The funny thing is that fewer and fewer people will get the [NO CARRIER] reference.

Kind of like the save icon still being a floppy disk in a lot of programs. I wonder how many younger computer users have never even SEEN a floppy.

Link Rot and the US Supreme Court

beernutz Save it to write once media too. (161 comments)

I would also add that this should be done with a "write once" kind of storage back. This way we have some small assurance it was not modified.

You could go even further and keep a running log on the same medium that had an md5 of each previous content item which was then md5'd with the current.
This seems (to me at least) like it would provide a verifiable trail that shows the written contents were not tampered with.

Would this kind of scheme me useful? or am I missing something obvious?

This would let a LOT of these kind of sites flourish.

I say, turn it around on them. Let them all spaz out when they see 100 more sites offering this service pop up.
